The Attempt at a Solution


If I were to simply plug in 25 in to the limit, i would get
((25)^(1/3) - 5)/25

Apparently the answer is 2/5. How the heck can you come to this conclusion?

That would be the answer if that wasn't a cube root but a badly formatted ##3 \sqrt{t}##.

No, don't slap yourself; slap the person who created the bad image.
